If one schematically compares the three principal tendencies in psychotherapy (Freud, Jung, Adler) with regard to the direction in which their central thought leads, one could say: The analytical... More > method of Sigmund Freud looks for the causae efficientes, the causes of the later behavioural disturbances. Alfred Adler considers and treats the initial situation with regard to a causa finalis and both see in the drives the causae materiales. In Carl Gustav Jung’s case the term ‘synthesis’ is based on his abandonment of the causal thinking of the alternative psychological methods of treatment. Jungian psychotherapy, therefore, is not an analytical procedure in the usual meaning of this term. Whatever the differences among Freud’s, Jung’s and Adler’s extensive works on the therapeutic methodologies; scientists, artists, thinkers and practitioners accept the great importance of Freud’s and Jung’s studies for medicine, psychology, anthropology, religion, art, history, literature, etc.< Less
The terms ethics and morality are closely related. We now often refer to ethical judgments or ethical principles where it once would have been more common to speak of moral judgments or moral... More > principles. These applications are an extension of the meaning of ethics.
Strictly speaking, however, the term refers not to morality itself but to the field of study, or branch of inquiry, that has morality as its subject matter. In this sense, ethics is equivalent to moral philosophy. Although ethics has always been viewed as a branch of philosophy, its all-embracing practical nature links it with many other areas of study, including anthropology, biology, medicine, economics, history, politics, psychology, and theology.
Yet, ethics remain distinct from such disciplines because it is not a matter of factual knowledge in the way that the sciences and other branches of inquiry are. Rather, it has to do with determining the nature of normative theories and applying these sets of principles to practical moral problems.< Less

Moral Philosophy from Socrates to the 21st Aeon has shown three constant themes.
1. Disagreements over whether ethical judgments are truths about the world or only reflections of the wishes of those... More > who make them,
